Fooling Ourselves


I tire of watered down scripture,
preached from pulpits reducing the word of God,
lessening the impact
of disobedience.

Yesterday what was sinful
is now blessed,
what was detested in God's sight
is now celebrated.

God's word,
the road-map for my life
is twisted by the faithful
and unbelievers.

Jesus never said that following Him would be easy.
There is much we need to leave behind
before entering
the Kingdom.

If we claim we want to follow the Lord
and place our sins in our pockets,
disguising them as acceptable,
are we only fooling ourselves?
